i used OVSD 5.1 patch 4 on hpux, i actually populate the CMDB and i encouter this: i have some server's with multiple IP's like front-end and back-end ip's. we also have virtual host and some server in a mc/service guard cluster.
my question is anyone run into this ? what are your best practice for server with multiple IP's ? for virtual host i would create a CI, but what about backend ? idea's are welcome.
unfortunately, there is no listbox object in the custom fields for OVSD. That would be the obvious choice, but is sadly unavailable. The other options are to create a series of single fields, one of each IP, or record them in a free text box.
Ask youself why you want to record this information. If it is simply to have a record of the IP's, then free text will suffice. If it is to intergrate with other systems, then you may want to go with seperate fields.
